The school field looked lovely in the afternoon sunshine as we bimbled toward the Happy Circus. We enjoyed the various stalls put on by the school, Kate won a bottle of wine and Bear two bottles of beer on the tombola stall.

Shaun Lee showed us his skills as an escapologist before the interval, a man and a lady from the audience checking the padlocks and chains, assisted by his wife Pippa. Later, they came back and Pippa folded herself in a box and Shaun showed two tubes into the cabinet and pulled the bottom half making Pippa into a zig-zag.
